The Gel Guru
Marcia Jiries

If you’re after the perfect gel manicure that will actually last a full two weeks, look no further than Jiries at Bliss Spa. The nail technician prides herself in maintaining the strength and health of her client’s nails and only uses CND Shellac polishes, which are known to be the gentlest gels on the market. As an added bonus, Bliss offers complimentary Champagne during the mani. $40, Hollywood, 887.862.5477

The Pedi Pundit
Base Coat

Get lacquered up without harmful toxins at this DTLA newbie, where lead nail technician Claudia Romero will twinkle your tootsies with vegan-friendly gel polishes by Fig+Yarrow or Base Coat’s in-house line composed of more than 100 vibrant shades. A second location will arrive in July on Fairfax. $40-$60, DTLA, 213.935.8330

The Face of Beauty
Dr. Simon Ourian

Famously celebrated by A-listers like the Kardashian/Jenner crew and for the transformative videos he posts on Instagram, Ourian works as a sculptor, precisely measuring the face before getting to work with the most advanced, noninvasive lasers and fillers. The spalike atmosphere and VIP service—any requested food or drink is served on a silver platter with crystal glassware—will calm nervous jitters.
